And now, mouse-eating in Zambia.
Elsewhere in the news, I am now switching my schedule over from nights to days, for Clarion. I would normally be hitting the rack around this time or earlier, but today I'm staying up until late evening, then going to bed at a more normal time. I won't have the old circadian rhythms completely rerouted by Sunday (that takes a week to two weeks for me), but the sooner I start, the sooner I will be living in the same world as everyone else, and not falling asleep at 4 in the afternoon, and perky and bouncy at 4 in the morning. Of course, six weeks from now I have to do the same thing in reverse.

|Right radical is 'head'. Left radical is 'order/rule' (令), used phonetically to express 'neck'. Thus, this character means 'head and neck'. Like 首, which also means head/neck/chief, this character came to mean chief, and associated meanings of control and territorial possession. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Head rules, controlling possessed territories.'|
